Reason for Newcastle vs Leicester City Predictions
Newcastle took a point from Liverpool in the last league game. With only 17 goals in their name, Newcastle is struggling to move to the front end of the field and choose the seventh-worst result of the season so far. At the other end, they fought with the defense and conceded 24 goals, which is the fifth-worst such record. However, the home fans’ hope comes from their recent home record, which beat Everton and West Brom in the last four league games with only one defeat. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park and does not allow the opponent much action. Joelinton is slowly returning to recognizable form, and he is a factor that can raise the team to a higher level with its goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Both these sides are suffering from numerous absentees, with Newcastle definitely missing Jamaal Lascelles, Allan Saint-Maxim, and Martin Dubravka, while Jonjo Shelvey and Ryan Fraser are major doubts.
On the other hand, Leicester City comes with a point won against Crystal Palace. The Foxes have won three of their last five matches and will need a better effort in defense as they have only kept three clean lines in their previous 11 games. They have been impressive in attack, scoring at least two goals in five of their last six matches. Leicester has actually failed to score in just one of their previous seven games and three of their last 12 in the Premier League. Five of the previous eight league games have scored over 2.5 goals and have six wins in their eight away games this season. The guests have scored two or more goals in five of their last eight away games, and this will be an interesting match for Jamie Vardy. Harvey Barnes plays great, is fast in the one-on-one game, and is unstoppable. Brendan Rodgers has confidence in this guy who is the future of English football. Jamie Vardy was the Premier League’s top scorer last season, scoring 23 goals, and is one of the league’s top players. He started well this season as well, he scored eight goals, all praise for him.
Leicester is the favorite, they have to reach three points,as the goal this season is to be placed among four teams.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
